Praise for The Time Between

“From its mesmerizing first scene, The Time Between propels you into the sun-baked world of the South Carolina Lowcountry, and a childhood tragedy that haunts the lives of two unforgettable sisters in love with the same man. In clear and gorgeous prose, White spins a luminous tale of love and loss, of betrayal and redemption, and of a harrowing family secret buried in the upheaval of the Second World War. This is storytelling of the highest order: the kind of book that leaves you both deeply satisfied and aching for more. No one weaves together the present and the past with greater magic than Karen White.”—New York Times bestselling author of Beatriz Williams

“White…crafts characters who transcend their romantic roles through their frailties and weaknesses.”—Kirkus Reviews
“White moves smoothly between narrators as well as different time periods, crafting an intriguing and romantic family drama.”—Booklist
“White writes complex, heartbreaking novels with just enough pathos and plenty of redemption.”—RT Book Reviews (Top Pick)
“Set in South Carolina’s idyllic Lowcountry against the bittersweet notes of a piano in mourning and a prophecy spoken in Gullah, The Time Between weaves a story as intricate and sturdy as a sweetgrass basket, with the fresh, magnetic voices of its headstrong characters.”—ArtsATL
The Time Between is a lyrically written, beautiful novel about atonement, love, and letting go. Engrossing and unforgettable.”—New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James
